Armstrong acquires SoliQz

Armstrong Chemtec Group, the Process Heat Transfer Specialist, has acquired SoliQz B.V., which adds a further step of Ultra Purification and compliments the benefits of Armstrong – Chemtec's continuous crystallization equipment which has been developed and proven for over 50 years in the process industry.

SoliQz B.V. was established to commercialize the Hydraulic Wash Column (HWC) for a broad range of solid/liquid separation applications. 15 years of intense technology development at TNO in the Netherlands have proven that the HWC technology works at lab-scale for a wide range of compounds. This technology has been successfully scaled-up to pilot and industrial scale. By creating a dedicated organization around the HWC technology Armstrong and SoliQZ see many more opportunities in the purification of bulk chemicals, bio-based monomers and polymers as well as broad range of specialty chemicals and pharmaceutical intermediates.

We believe that Quality, Safety, Performance and Longevity to be crucial aspects of our equipment and customer relations are paramount in making and keeping customers.

Since all employees now have a vested interest in the success of the company, Armstrong Engineering is poised for even greater growth in the future. Not only do we have extensive worldwide manufacturing facilities, but more importantly, we have the experienced personnel to take us into the future. Our current management team has been with Armstrong Engineering for a combined 100+ years, and is committed to providing complete customer satisfaction.
